This week's case file felt very summery to me and I was planning to scrap some summer photos, but when going through a pile of photos I found these of weathered buildings taken on a winter day, so I picked them instead. From the evidence items I used: woodgrain (both paper and stamp), paint and sand off, weathered look, stuff in a pocket. From the testimony items: transparent container, summer story but in winter.
These photos were taken on during a walk on a little island which is full of people during summer, but pretty empty at winter time. I used unusually much patterned paper on this layout, covering the cardstock with three different patterned papers. I added some stamping on top, using stamps that fit with the theme.
I also used a bunch of old postage stamps and some vintage photos, which fit since this island has a very old and interesting history.
There is a tag book in the vellum pocket, with lots more photos and the journaling. The journaling is about how we love to go and walk on this island and compares how it looks during summer and winter, full of people, boats and activities, compared to almost deserted, no shops open, hardly a person in sight. Cliffs, sea, history, beautiful views, nice old buildings and an old fort in the middle of it all. When it snows, the snow collects in between cliffs and stones (it is very windy), making for a very interesting landscape. We had picnic in one of the dressing room, with lots of peeling paint, fun for photos.
